John 1:14

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. http://esv.to/John1.14

Fully human, fully God, the exact image of the Father, Jesus reveals the Father. And he is grace and truth. Grace and truth, kindness beyond measure, this is our God, self giving, glorifying himself in humbling himself for us. The light shines in the darkness, dawning in our hearts, a mighty presence. Light and life found in the new born Son, fragile, vulnerable, easily snuffed out. The Creator becomes a creature so that the mystery from the beginning is revealed; we are loved and treasured and he takes upon himself our sin and faces evil for us. In him we know forgiveness and can rest secure, cradled in his love. This is love lying in a manger.
